The "Lessons Learned" 
Information Sheet

A photograph from our rabies clinic in 2017. Note the two water bottles at the end of the table. Tap water in the Dominican Republic is not considered safe to drink, and so we only drink bottled water which will be readily available in our dormitory and dining hall. Everyone needs a personal water bottle.

It's time to start working on the information documents that we traditionally post on the planning page for the information of new missioners and as a reminder for the veterans. The first one of these documents that we will consider is "Lessons Learned," which is a compilation of practical advice and team customs that we edit and expand as needed for each trip. The 2017 "Lessons Learned" document is posted at the link below. Please check it out and submit any comments, edits, added sections that you think would be useful for the 2018 trip to either Julia or Julius by 5 p.m. on Tuesday, April 17. We will then use those suggestions to post a revised 2018 "Lessons Learned" document on Thursday, April 19, and will send that out in the weekly team message on that same day.

Our planning page has been updated with the 2017 document, which will be replaced by the 2018 version on April 19. To see that planning page, click the link below:
